    Is there a way to make the white excerpt area slightly transparent? Shoutbox theme.

    This fixed it for me!

    .slideshow_caption {

    opacity:0.00001;

    filter:alpha(opacity=.0001);

    background: #222222;

    width: 264px;

    }

    .slideshow_caption .inner_caption {

    background: #222222;

    }

    .post_excerpt {

    opacity:0.85;

    filter:alpha(opacity=85);

    }

    Personally.. I think you should make the transparency standard in your next update! It looks great. :)

    Glad that you solved the problem :)

    This helped me a bit but how do I keep the text/font consistently strong while reducing the opacity even more?

    How do I make the transparent box size smaller?

    I still haven’t figured this out. All I need is the font not fade. Right now I hate that ugly white excerpt area in front of the slider so much that I just want to get rid of it completely. I just want the white text with the short description of the featured post to show.

    Hi,

    I think the fonts are being affected by this

    .post_excerpt {
    opacity:0.85;
    filter:alpha(opacity=85);
    }

    Try to use something like this instead.

    .post_excerpt {
    background: rgba(255,255,255,0.85);
    }

    The last value 0.85 is the opacity.

    Ok so now I am getting somewhere.

    The code partially worked.

    I currently set it to:

    .post_excerpt {

    background: rgba(0, 0, 0, 0.5) !important;

    }

    but if you check out my site http://www.thericeking.net

    The fonts in the box are set to a light grey and is hard to see. I looked everywhere in the theme option and there is no settings to change the font colors inside that featured box.

    Can you share another code that will help me adjust the text color inside the box?

    I also need help adjusting the transparency in the “Blog Layout – Full sized entries” and “Blog Layout – Half sized entries” to match the one in the featured slider.

    Hi thericeking,

    Kindly add this code:

    .featured_inner_slider .post_excerpt p,
    .feature_thumbnails a strong,
    .post-entry .entry-content p {
    color: white;
    }

    or

    .featured_inner_slider .post_excerpt p,
    .feature_thumbnails a strong,
    .post-entry .entry-content p {
    color: white !important;
    }

    Hope this helps. :)

    Regards,

    Ismael
